Q.

pesticides for leaf footed bugs

Zone South Arkansas | Anonymous added on June 17, 2016 | Answered

These bugs that resemble a stink bug are killing my Squash and Cucumber plants. I would like to find out what type of pesticide I can spray to rid them. This is the second year in a row that this has happened to me and last year it was too late to do anything about it. They have laid their eggs and are starting to hatch out, thus really increasing my problem.

Here is a link with help in controlling squash bugs.
I would recommend Neem Oil as a good treatment.
